What Should I Feed Baby Goldfish Fry After The Fish Eggs Hatch?

When your goldfish are done breeding what and how do you feed baby goldfish fry after the eggs hatch. These small baby goldfish will feed off the yolk sac for the first 24 hours after the goldfish eggs hatch before swimming on their own. After the baby goldfish fry are swimming on their own you will need to start feeding them. If you go to your local pet store or online aquarium store you can buy powdered fry food specifically for baby goldfish. Depending on the store you might be able to buy liquid vitamins that will help improve the health of your new baby fish.

What I like to do is mix the powdered fry food with the liquid vitamins to make a paste then feed this to your baby goldfish. They will have all the nutrients they need to grow. In order to raise baby goldfish you need to provide enough space for them to grow and a good feeding schedule. Try and feed them three to four times a day in small amounts. Baby goldfish require more feedings in the early stages of life much like babies when they’re born.

When goldfish breeders spawn goldfish they have them in holding ponds for the first couple of weeks. After that they introduce the baby goldfish to mud ponds to grow them out. When goldfish are grown in mud ponds you will see much better growth due to the large amount live food and algae available in ponds. If you feed your baby goldfish powdered food, liquid vitamins and put them in a pond you will have plenty of healthy baby fish.

Did you ever breed goldfish before? Did you have a lot of baby goldfish? What did you feed your baby goldfish fry when the fish eggs hatched?

How To Disinfect Fish Nets For Goldfish Aquarium, Fish Tank or Garden Pond?

If your looking for ways to disinfect or sterilize fish nets for your goldfish tank or fish pond you’ll learn how here. What do you do with fish nets that have become exposed to a variety of fish diseases? How do you clean and sterilize your fish nets? Did you know that you can easily transfer fish diseases and parasites by fish nets?

Aquarium owners need to realize that disinfecting aquarium equipment and supplies like fish nets is very important. What you don’t want to do is transfer fish diseases back and forth between tanks or after fish have been cured and treated for diseases or parasites. What I like to do is after exposing fish nets to diseases or parasites such as ich is to place my fish nets in a solution of water and malachite green. This will help disinfect or kill any bad bacteria or parasites on your fish nets.

Kordon Malachite Green - Fish Medication For Treating Ich and External ParasitesIn the container of malachite green I like to use a strong dosage. I always say that more is not better when treating fish but when it comes to disinfecting fish nets go for it. Make sure the fish nets is completely submerged in the solution. Cleaning and sterilizing your fish nets with malachite green is the best way.

What other people like to do for cleaning their fish nets is by boiling water and placing the fish nets in it. You can do it this way but this is time consuming. You’ll have to boil water and wait. There is no need and you can make your life easier and more efficient. All you need to do is leave your fish nets in a solution of malachite green and that’s all there is to it. Using malachite green will disinfect fish nets.

What are some ways you use to clean/sterilize/disinfect your fish nets?

Treating Ich In a Planted Aquarium – Will Fish Medication Kill My Live Plants?

That day will come when you have to deal with treating ich in a planted aquarium and most aquarium owners are afraid of killing or harming their aquarium plants. You have every right to worry! Think of the time and money you put into your fish tank only to have some fish medication kill your aquarium plants.

What you need to do is find ich medication that is safe for aquarium plants. There is one that I’ve used that treats ich and is plant safe.  When treating for ich try using Maracide From MardelLabs which treats against ich, velvet and other external parasites. This ich medication I’ve used many times and it did not kill or harm my aquarium plants at all.

Maracide Mardel Labs - Fish Medication For Treating Ich

So next time your goldfish or tropical fish catch ich don’t worry! Use Maracide from Mardel Labs and get rid of ich fast and keep your aquarium plants safe.

Can I Put Live Aquarium Plants In My Goldfish Tank?

Thinking of putting live aquarium plants in your fish tank with your goldfish? Go for it! Yes, you can add aquarium plants even though you have goldfish. I know many people think that goldfish will eat anything green and the live plants you add to your aquarium will be nothing but fish food. That’s not the case. You can still create a beautiful aquarium with plants and have goldfish in it too.

Goldfish do like to eat and nibble at plants but what you need to do is add aquarium plants that your goldfish won’t be interested in eating. For instance if your thinking of putting some duckweed in your fish tank, it will be gone before you know it. Goldfish love eating duckweed! What you need to do is add aquarium plants that are tough and that has leaves your fish don’t like to eat.

What I have tried over the years and have had great success with is using aquarium plants like Java Fern and Anubias. What I like to do with these plants is attach them to rocks or pieces of driftwood. These plants look amazing in an aquarium! The driftwood makes a nice centrepiece as well.

Live Aquarium Plants In Fish Tanks Look Amazing!

So if your tired of those fake artificial aquarium plants and want real live plants, give it a shot! Aquarium plants are very beneficial and they will help filter your water as well. Nothing beats natural filtration and that’s what water plants do.

So next time your at the pet store or online, pick up a few aquarium plants and add them in with your goldfish. Let me know how you make out! I guarantee you’ll love the new look that live plants do for your aquarium. You’ll also love the colours of your goldfish as it will seem so much brighter as they swim amongst the aquarium plants.
